Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia an embattled former Federal High Court Judge,  on Friday, slumped in the premises of the Ikeja High Court where she is standing trial over allegations of collecting bribes running into millions of dollars.

Lead counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission,  Rotimi Oyedepo said the matter had to be adjourned.

Ajumogobia, it would be recalled was dismissed from the bench by the National Judicial Council this October for gross misconduct.

The embattled Judge was rushed to a local hospital in an ambulance forcing Justice Hakeem Oshodi to adjourn the matter, following a request by her lead counsel, Mr Robert Clarke, SAN.

Ofili-Ajumogobia is standing trial alongside Mr Godwin Obla, SAN on 31 counts bordering on corruption and 2 counts bordering on perverting of justice.

At the last adjourned date,  Justice Hakeem Oshodi had dismissed Ajumogobia’s no case submission application,  ordering her to open her defence. The EFCC in the trial has so far called 12 witnesses against Ajumogobia
